While the overall experience was good and the staff super helpful and friendly, the room (double private) was not as expected. The beds are old and not very comfy. The entire enterieur is old and looks more like 'found on the street'. While I appreciate re-using and keeping stuff until it 'falls apart', to have a minimal eco footprint on this planet, the rooms are absolutely overpriced. We knew Norway ain't cheap, but for 155 Euro/2nights/2pax I kinda expect something different. The breakfast was good, plenty of options. Only thing missing: Yoghurt. (There's all sorts of milk, even vegan and lactose free, as well as Kefir. But no yoghurt ;-). All in all, we did enjoy staying in Oslo. Would we book this hostel again? Most likely, unfortunately, not. We'd probably look for something different. Thanks again to the very friendly staff in helping out, explaining the public transport system (ruter app), etc. You guys keep this hostel alive.

Top marks for staff, not so much for hostel in general. As it is temporary hostel for the summer only it feels a bit odd. The kitchen was not very well equipped for self catering, fortunately we had our camping gear so managed ok.
